Synopsis: A collection of eight short stories in which a variety of special characters experience the transfiguring power of love.

From School Library Journal: Eight finely crafted stories explore various aspects of love from a variety of perspectives. From the two 16-year-olds, wise beyond their years, who are preparing for separation from their as yet unborn child in the title story, to the optimistic musings of an old man at his grandaughter's wedding, readers are treated to unique yet universal observations of people in love. The stories are filled with both humor and heartbreak, but the sensibility of Rylant's voice and her distinctly drawn characters evoke genuine sentiment while avoiding sentimentality. Original in plot and rich in imagery, the stories read smoothly, offering a broad range of experience and viewpoint. Although half of the stories feature adolescent characters, the themes may be of more interest to adults than to young readers. However, those who delve into the book will be well rewarded. --Starr LaTronica, North Berkeley Library, CA
